Established in 1972, the Australian Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) is involved in preserving quarter horses and working in the interests of its members, of which there are 6,000.

The AQHA is responsible for enacting horse registration guidelines and record keeping, which is achieved via the association’s Stud Book.

A vast range of quarter horse breeds are catered to by the association, including Western Pleasure, Cutting, Reining and Working Cowhorses.

In total, over 159,000 quarter horses are registered with the association.

The AQHA constructs educational programs and materials for the benefit of its members, and to affirm its reputation as one of Australians leading horse organisations.

A high emphasis is placed on marketing and advertising Australian quarter horses in order to enhance awareness within the broader community.

The AQHA produces Australian Quarter Horse magazine, a glossy monthly publication that features informative editorial and covers all aspects of the quarter horse industry.

Furthermore, the association is affiliated with quarter horse organisations in every Australian state.

These affiliates generally promote quarter horses on a more local level.

In 1985 the AQHA created the youth division, a segment that deals specifically with the needs of individuals under the age of eighteen.

Here the focus is on arranging and funding training clinics and youth camps for young riders and attracting sponsorship for youth engaging in international competitions.  

Full, youth, life, constituent and associate membership types are available. Individual rights and privileges within the association vary according to membership type.
